The Korean carmaker, Kia Motors has revealed that something big coming up on 27 April 2021. While the carmaker did not reveal additional details, but as per the sources, Seltos range could be the model to receive the update. It will also debut the new Kia logo. While that’s all we know, for now, it leaves a lot of space for speculation.
Kia Seltos to get Panoramic Sunroof by late April
Kia Seltos, a popular SUV has been in the Indian market for two years. Since its launch, the Seltos has helped the Korean brand to gain a strong foothold on Indian soil. Kia Seltos has quite an extensive features list since its launch, a much sought-after feature – a panoramic sunroof – has been missing on the SUV. Currently, the Seltos comes with an electric sunroof, while its direct rival Hyundai Creta gets a big panoramic unit. Due to the increasing popularity of sunroofs, Kia might introduce a panoramic sunroof for the Seltos.
In our country, a sunroof is considered to be a premium feature and a panoramic sunroof is a cherry on top. Sunroof help in opening up a sense of airiness in the cabin as it lets in a lot of light to the cabin. Mechanically no changes are expected. Kia currently offers the Seltos with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder NA petrol engine producing 115 PS of max power and 144 Nm of peak torque, a 1.5-litre four-pot oil burner rated at 115 PS/250 Nm, as well as a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that makes 140 PS power and 242 Nm torque.
New Kia logo
Kia might go ahead and debut its new logo on the updated Seltos. As per the sources, the Kia Seltos will receive updates in the form of the new Kia logo that was unveiled in January 2021. The carmaker debuted its new logo worldwide, but it is yet to debut in India. It resembled a hand-written signature and came with a new brand slogan: ‘Movement that inspires.’ The logo could now physically arrive in India along with whatever updates Kia might have in store for the Seltos.
Seltos will be the first Kia product in India to get the brand’s new logo. The updated Seltos will continue to rival midsize SUVs like the Creta and the Nissan Kicks, for now.
